Bothersome Bibliographies

And I’m back from the dead yet again, I really should get a hold of my perpetual Lazarus syndrome. Sorry, I’ve been mad busy in real life (still am mad busy truth be told), but I’ve missed creative writing, so here is a little.

This piece is from dVerse’s Quadrille Monday with the prompt “Bother”. If I can bother you some more, go read the fantastic submissions now

Why do I bother seeking for words
Hunting, peering, searching, fearing,
Long days lost in dusty books
Penning lexemes to be locked in dusty books
Parched paragraphs perplexing pointlessly
I could be free
Flying, rhyming, dancing, climbing
Breathing fresh air
Away from bothersome bibliographies

Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment

  1. but then who would write such lovely poems for me to read? 🙂


  2. Glad you perched in the pub this day. Why, indeed.

  3. It looks like you found something to do with all those words.

  4. You are right, writing is freedom! Well done!

  5. I enjoyed this one 😀 I feel one flies freely through their poetry, don’t you agree? 💝💝

  6. But isn’t exploring words a kind of freedom? Balance is the key, I guess…

  7. Great questions? Eloquently presented.

  8. Creative writing … you have the touch! Cheers.

  9. how poetic and lovely… words are adventures…

  10. Love this. Your use of alliteration and sound are wonderful.

    • Thanks for the kind comment. The alliteration just seemed to fit as a nice juxtaposition of academic fustiness and the somewhat childish feeling alliteration has. Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for the prompt

  11. Glad to see you back… and you did for sure find some good wording for us in this quadrille.

    • Good to be back, hopefully I can find at least one free day a week before my deadlines, and then I’ll do my best to stick around a bit better. Thanks for the comment, glad you enjoyed it
